What's New This Week

ALL THE NEW URLS we receive each week are here. We list two (sometimes three) weeks’ worth, cycling the old ones off each week. As they disappear from this page, you'll find the links moved to their natural home categories in our resource pages.

If you can't find something that was once here, you can look in our archives or try the AO search engine. It searches our entire site, and it can also search all of the sites to which we link.

USA: Milford, Connecticut, 17 May, 2003, A Not-So-Quiet-Day of Spiritual Exercises, Using Sound and Shared Silence
The voice is nature's most perfect instrument; other instruments have been trying to replicate its magnetism since the dawn of time. Voices reveal things about us before we realize them ourselves—like emotions or mood—and voices can clue us in to our physical and emotional realities. Our voices are our barometers: they measure the atmospheric pressure of our emotions. Voices can betray energy level—picture a child before bed, hoarsely crying, 'I’m NOT tired!’ Our voices disclose attitude: honest or dishonest, sincere or insincere. How often are the words 'Oh, I’d love to,' belied by the feeling in the voice ('No way in hell!'). When we dream about our greatest dreams or suffer our biggest hurts, they are present in our voices.
    Join us for a day of singing, deep listening, and seriously fun prayer. Knowing yourself can put you on the fast track to a healthy inner life. Learn how your voice lives in your body, and how to use it to generate health and healing. Listen to yourself for a change. The voice you’ve been given is a part of your gift to the world, and is unique in the universe.
    Who: Open to absolutely everybody. A multifaith experience. If you can hum, you can come!
    When: Saturday, May 17, 2003, from 10am - 3pm
    Where: St. John’s Church, 7 Whittlesey Avenue New Milford, Connecticut
    Facilitator: Ana Hernández, workshop leader and composer / arranger of sacred music
    Cost: Contact St John’s Church, at +860 354-5583
